The department of Cotes d'Armor is the northern most department in the Region of Brittany, with the English Channel to the north, Ille-et-Vilaine to the east, Morbihan to the south and Finistere to the west it is a sunshine gem.

The picturesque Émeraude Coast looks north to the English Channel and is packed with charming seaside resorts and old fishing villages. Most of the towns of the interior were founded in the Middle Ages. The department's southern half is crossed by the Noires Mountains that run west to east with rivers emptying to the south into the Bay of Biscay and to the north into the Channel.

Along the coast, fishing was once important but is now secondary to the cultivation of fruit, oats, potatoes and wheat and of course tourism.
